All profits raised from Little Summer Beer Bash 2023 will be donated to Help Bristol's Homeless.

'Our mission is to change the face of homelessness in Bristol. Through the support of our trustees, volunteers and supporters our vision of a gated community of self-contained micro flats, created from shipping containers, and the amenities needed to support our residents is becoming a reality. We are able to provide temporary accommodation for more than 15 residents until they can each move on to a more permanent home. Your help and support to complete the vision is vital.'
